Predict the Top 8 of 2013



Final Standings


Congrats, Marto

 ... 
 ->full list of entries 

ATP YearEnd Rankings:        1.Nadal 2.Djokovic 3.Ferrer 4.Murray 5.DelPotro 6.Federer 7.Berdych 8.Wawrinka 
                               9.Gasquet 10.Tsonga 11.Raonic 


*side note: I excluded the following double accounts from the game (and also from the stats): 
    Cheyen, RafaelNadalisGod, Noserer



Stats

Code:
The Tennis players picked by 56 of the 57 entrants are sorted by their ATP rankings (season end 2012) 
to better illustrate the expected changes. 
(I excluded the picks of one entrant, that was obviously trolling, from the stats, but not from the game.) 
The first number after the players' names shows how often they were picked. 
The second number results from the predicted rankings, if 8 points for 1st ranks, ..., 1 for 8th. 

  1. Djokovic   56   431 
  2. Federer    56   310 
  3. Murray     56   364 
  4. Nadal      56   324 
  5. Ferrer     47   132 
  6. Berdych    49   119 
  7. DelPotro   54   224 
  8. Tsonga     39    65 
  9. Tipsarevic  1     1  by coolfish1103 
 10. Gasquet     2     2  by Slasher1985 and Pratik 
(11. Almagro     0) 
(12. Monaco      0) 
 13. Raonic     18    33! 
 14. Isner       1     1  by latso 
 15. Cilic       3     4  by AncicCilic and Legendary Lopata and GrimbleGromble 
(17. Wawrinka    0!) 
 19. Nishikori   5     6 
 24. Verdasco    1     2  by Dr. Albans 
 26. Janowicz    3     5  by nellis_lv and BauerAlmeida and Brick Top 
 48. Dimitrov    1     1  by iniesta896
Code:
So the Top 8 of 2013 as expected by the average of the entrants are: 

  1. Djokovic       0 
  2. Murray        +1 
  3. Nadal         +1 
  4. Federer       -2 
  5. DelPotro      +2 
  6. Ferrer        -1 
  7. Berdych       -1 
  8. Tsonga         0 

And in fact two entrants chose precisely the above version: duong and myself.



The Challenge was...

Code:
Predict the Tennis players that will make the Top 8 (Entry list) at the end of the 2013 season 
(after the DavisCup finals) - and their rankings! 

Basically the winner is who predicts most Top 8 players correctly (so as possible all 8). 
The predicted rankings will be used for tiebreaks. 

1st tiebreak: (for entrants on the same number of correct picks) 
Every single deviation from the real rankings leads to one penalty point 
(for every player/pick simply accumulated). 
For example, if I guess that Federer finishes 1st and Nadal 3rd, but in reality it turns out to be reversely, 
then I receive 2 penalty points for each of them, so altogether 4. 
2nd tiebreak: (for entrants still tied after the 1st tiebreak) 
Correctly predicted rankings in uninterrupted sequence, starting with the correct N°1. 
For example, if I pick "1.Djokovic 2.Federer 3.Murray", but in reality the order becomes "1.Djokovic 2.Murray 
3.Federer", then another entrant who picked "1.Djokovic 2.Murray" wins the tiebreak over me. 
Entry deadline is the start of the AbuDhabi tournament on 27th December 2012. 
Before then you can also alter your picks / edit your posts if you like.

Default Re: Challenge: Predict the Top 8 of 2013 !

I will not be original, I thought about putting Cilic in Tsonga's place but honestly except injury (and there's quite a big probability that one of these gets one ) I think the current top-8 players can do it again next year :

1. Djokovic
2. Murray
3. Nadal
4. Federer
5. Del Potro
6. Ferrer
7. Berdych
8. Tsonga

usually in the past, the year of the 32nd birthday has been hard for old top-players then I'm worried for Fed, also because the guys behind him look very competitive, but I really hope he can stay in the top-4, that's my main hope
